Since you identify as an ego you know not who it is that has it. Please leave God ideas out of it because if you don’t know who is asking you cannot expect help. Even devotion is insincere.
Govinda, most honorable, I thank you for such an intelligent good answer.

Although I do not follow the path of Bhakti-yoga or Karma Yoga I have studied the Bhagavad-Gita from both translations by Swami Prabhavananda and Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s translation is my favorite. (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2 verse 45) “The Vedas concern is with the three gunas. Be without the three Gunas, O Arjuna Krishna spoke, freed from duality, ever firm in purity, independent of possessions, possessed of the Self.”

This is the technique of instantaneous realization; dropping the held idea of a separate self or the false ego. This realization is possible through reawakening inner vision. The imaged ego cannot stand under the scrutiny of observation. This is the meaning of surrender and wholeness with the universe.

You’re a matrix of perspective mechanisms.

Sitting quietly as if in meditation but simply clearing your mind completely of thought. Ego cannot exist in that state.

salvia divinorum. it is only a plant. one hit. only last 5-7 minutes. definately wiped my ego and everything i thought i was right off of the drawing board…allowing for a clean foundationless foundation to take its place. may take multiple attempts to achieve this…but it is sure to get the job done.

He had alot to say.
He had alot of nothing to say.
We’ll miss him.
I’ll miss him.

He had alot to say.
He had alot of nothing to say.
We’ll miss him.
I’ll miss him.
We’re gonna miss him
We’re gonna miss him

So long.
We wish you well.
You told us how you weren’t afraid to die.
Well then, so long.
Don’t cry.
Or feel too down.
Not all martyrs see divinity.
But at least you tried.

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud.
We’ll miss him.
We’ll miss him.

Ranting and pointing his finger
At everything but his heart.
We’ll miss him.
We’ll miss him.
We’re gonna miss him.
We’re gonna miss him.

No way to recall
What it was that you had said to me,
Like I care at all.

But you were so loud.
You sure could yell.
You took a stand on every little thing
And so loud.

You could be the one who saves me from my own existance.

“I’m too smart when you’re invisible by the bone and the symbol on you. So he bashes his skull through the window while over looking the sea. Twilight amber ego. We were amused by this”

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud and I
Swallowed his facade cuz I’m so
Eager to identify with
Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, and
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?
Don’t you fuckin lie.

Don’t you step out of line.
Don’t you step out of line.
Don’t you step out of line.
Don’t you fuckin lie.

You’ve claimed all this time that you would die for me.
Why then are you so surprised when you hear your own
eulogy?

He had alot to say.
He had alot of nothing to say.
He had alot to say.
He had alot of nothing to say.

Come down.
get off your fuckin cross.
We need the fuckin space to nail the next fool martyr.

To ascend you must die.
You must be crucified
For our sins and our lies.
Goodbye!!!
-tool eulogy

Celibacy is good, gives one intelligence that will lead eventually to one to surrender…there is no other way, any techniques we will do with our stun born false ego it will be just mundane and insincere as you know.

BG 7.25: I am never manifest to the foolish and unintelligent. For them I am covered by My internal potency, and therefore they do not know that I am unborn and infallible.

BG 7.29: Intelligent persons who are endeavoring for liberation from old age and death take refuge in Me in devotional service. They are actually Brahman because they entirely know everything about transcendental activities.

BG 12.13-14: One who is not envious but is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor and is free from false ego, who is equal in both happiness and distress, who is tolerant, always satisfied, self-controlled, and engaged in devotional service with determination, his mind and intelligence fixed on Me – such a devotee of Mine is very dear to Me.
